CEANNGUILLA SLIDE. AKA - "Ceanngulla Slide." AKA and see "Baile Bheachain," "Ballyvaughan (2)," "Gleanntán Frolics (2)." Irish, Slide (12/8 time). Ireland, Sliabh Luachra, County Kerry. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Ceannguilla is southeast of the town of Scartaglen, Co. Kerry. This melody is the second in a set of three slides recorded by Séamus Ennis (1919-1982) from the playing of Sliabh Luachra fiddle master Wikipedia:Padraig O'Keeffe (1887-1963), originally from Glountane Cross, Cordal, Castleisland, County Kerry. The tune is often played in a set with "Gleanntán Frolics (1) (The)" and that association has led to "Ceannguilla Slide" also being called by that name (see "Gleanntán Frolics (2)"). Paul de Grae finds that the slide is a version of a song air collected in the mid-19th century by artist and scholar Wikipedia:George_Petrie_(artist) (1790-1866) called "A Mháire! is deas go gháire" (Stanford-Petrie, 1905, Nos. 1429-1431) and "Baile Bheachain", also known in Scotland as "My Ain Kind Dearie (1)"[1].

Compare also with the mid-19th century Munster jigs "Baile na Cúirte" and "Humors of Ballinacourty (The)."
